This card is for the Hero Arts March challenge (flower theme), and inspired by my last CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration layout. The background is done by layering stamping, gesso, paint and mist on ledger paper. The butterflies are made of modeling film and coloured with alcohol inks. I made the card in a horizontal and a vertical version, not sure which one I like the best. TFL!!

I posted a step-by-step tutorial on my blog: []
